I was feeling a little off-centered today so I did what I normally do when I need to re-center. I played in my garden and made some great new recipes and food in the kitchen.  I decided to try a new recipe from Gwyneth Paltro’s  site.  I was blown away by how delicious her dressing was.  This is what I paired it with. Enjoy and please leave me feedback.
